A 45 year old male patient presented with history of painless swelling on the right dorsum of ring finger palm since 4 years. Physical examination revealed irregular firm mass on the volar aspect of the left thumb measuring 13x6 cm, extending from base of the proximal phalynx to thenar crease. Movements of right ring and little finger at MCP joint were restricted. X-ray of the hand showed a dense soft tissue mass with calcification (Fig. 1). There was no periosteal reaction nor any erosionof the cortical bone. Marginal excision of the tumor was done under regional anaesthesia and was sent for histopathological examination.
